Quick Reference

Oldest surviving compendium of religious law by Malik ibn Anas al-Asbahi (d. 795), eponymous founder of the Maliki school of law. Cites various hadiths on specific topics but bases the final legal ruling on each issue on the practice of the Medinan school. Maintained strict standards in hadiths—if Malik quotes a hadith text on the authority of a narrator, the narrator is seen as reliable.

Subjects: Islam.
